On the morning of January 14, 2011, thousands of Tunisians gathered in a mass protest against the autocratic regime of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, chanting: "Bread and water but no Ben Ali."

Three years later, many Tunisians agree that living in the North African country has become more difficult, and few think the goals expressed by the "bread and water" slogan have been achieved.

Post-Ben Ali Tunisia has been marked by inflation and economic malaise. As a result, some have voiced their nostalgia for the Ben Ali era.
